To the Editor:—
With reference to the excellent answer (Antibiotic-Resistant Gonococci, JAMA179:586 [Feb. 17] 1962) prepared by Dr. Schwimmer, I should like to state that there is reason why 3,000,000 units of procaine penicillin G (not just 1,800,000 units) could be used. I should like also to call attention to the much neglected genus of microorganisms, Mimeae, which have invalidated the diagnosis of gonorrhea by the smear method, and to Neisseria fulva and Neisseria gigantea which may also confuse the diagnosis.
